Dichotomies

People are dying in Ukraine 

And we worry about our retirement fund balance decreasing

Buildings and cities are being destroyed

And we plan our summer vacations

Refugees arrive from a ravaged land

And we buy our spring wardrobe

There is no electricity or water in some homes

And we complain about our cold springs

The pain of one should be the pain of all

We should not get numb to the images on our TV’s

There is a lot of misery in our world

The least we can do is be the cause of peace of harmony

Do we know how?

Unity can be an illusive thing

We know what it is theoretically

But what does it mean in practice?

We know we must be loving

But are we always?

We have good intentions 

But sometimes we’re misunderstood

We want to creat harmony 

But by what means?

There is a lot of hurt in our communities

But does that justify hurting someone else’s feelings?

We are still so flawed and need to learn many things

But we are on our way to perfection and unity

We have to be very patient with one another on this way

Sometimes we will learn our lessons the hard way

Sometimes we need to forgive and forget

The human condition is a complicated one

We know what we must do

But do we know how always?
